netanyahu tomorrow action all of this after the israeli government confirming there was an effort to put a meeting on the books when prime minister netanyahu was here in the united states and that he was rebuffed to have this face to face bilateral meeting with our president. well, the white house said we have phone, we're in constant contact and now we hear word they'll be in contact tomorrow. we'll take you to you united tha nations live when they begin to address that world body. >>> as if it couldn't get worse for the people of syria who are staggering beneath the burn of a relentless civil war, much of it brought on by their very own president, the united nations has come out with staggering new numbers. by the end of this year, number of syrians literally running for their lives, the number could surpass 700,000. that's seven times more than the u.n. estimated just back in march. these people and their kids are making a mad dash for the countries next door and tens of thousands have already made it into turkey. but this overwhelming flow of humanity is causing a huge problem for tu
, university of maryland -- north carolina i debated former vermont governor about the role of government. i hope i convince them but i don't know. when everything it is important we have an open debate. and traditionally that is what universities were supposed to be about. open debate. but college campuses often are not. two reasons. some have speech codes of what you cannot say. some are so liberal libertarians and conservatives are ostracized if they speak up. you had a student here? >> 2010. and robert studies free-speech and is with fire the foundation for individual rights and education. hadley, you were not very political. what happened? >> i have opinions but struggled what i believe, when to speak up, and when to be quiet. john: the because of friends ? >> there were a variety of students that were very mature but others who could be loudmouth that overshadows the culture with a small group to make a lot of noise it can be intimidating. congressmen tom 10 credo was invited but the speech never happened. john: he has positions on immigration that you disagree. i am not in alignment w
is not under the power of the government, of the administration. they have their own laws and that's what they follow. and we have no interference in that. and the government has paved the way for the highest form of freedom for all people, and you see that comfortably people criticize, people sometimes trespass the border lines of proper protest and they insult one another. as a president, i'm in the middle of the people of iran without drawing any borders, without drawing any red lines, and we converse. >> right. but this isn't just any protester. this could be your daughter in the future. it is the daughter of your predecessor, the president. a fairly significant moment that she has been imprisoned. do you feel uncomfortable that this lady is in jail? >> translator: you see, let's separate the t arguments, the two topics. the fact that whether i'm happy at anyone going to prison, no, never. never. no one should go to prison. but also keep in mind that in any country, everyone must be treated equally under the laws. no one must have or must receive special treatment because of having be
for the video? the idea that a government is apologizing for this video is lamentable. cheryl: isn't it true, but that is seen as a weakness when you apologize for anything. as an opponent and not an ally, the president said today. doesn't that weaken our foreign policy? >> pretty much, i think no one really fears the united states in that region. they have basically discounted the american president and he goes to the united nations and says that bashar al-assad -- he said that 13 months ago, he is still saying the same things about syria. we have done nothing about this eerie intensity and things are what they seem to us. cheryl: one thing he has done with the issue of syria, he has put hillary clinton as the face. mostly she is not going to be a secretary of state. do they know that in the muslim world? do they see her as a credible person? >> i'm glad that you took us there. secretary of state quinten stop in south africa and there was a scene of her cutting a rug on a dance floor in south africa. people look at this as ridiculous. secretary clinton has been running the clock on the syri
need host government. the libyan government in this case, support to allow u.s. military boots on the ground to provide sort of the defensive security perimeter around the benghazi compound. now, i spoke to a senior administration official who said they have been having regular meetings twice daily, secure video teleconferences on updates of the investigation. there has been regular deputies committee meetings hosted by dennis mcdonough, the deputy national security advisor and discussions regarding libyan support and cooperation, my law enforcement source was quite clear, it's not that the libyans haven't been cooperative. there have been discussions that the libyans were concerned that they themselves couldn't provide the sort of comprehensive security to protect the fbi team and that there were concerns on the libyan part about having a u.s. military presence on the ground. all of that said, anderson, as you point out, 18 days later after the attack, the fbi today sort of indicated to me through a senior law enforcement official they're having serious debates as to whether o
protect its in my pocket. this is the government basically being a moderate. they get to do it legally and there is not all lot you can do to stop them. lori: remind me what tax reform should look like. >> we ought to be taxing consumption instead of productivity. the things that make an economy strong our work, savings, investment. those are things that make us stronger. we penalize the very things that are productive. we ought to be rewarding people are working and saving and investing because they're helping the economy to grow. that is why i am a fairfax -- fair tax supporter which would create a very different model. it is changing the foundation. lori: at the end of the day you need economic growth to be supportive of tax rates, and we are just come as you said, flat line at 1%. a revision, a downward revision. you know, hell are we going to get the overall growth rate higher? do we have to wait? obviously the election is so near, but are we just putting too much hope on to washington right now and not enough on good old fashion innovation and ingenuity? >> ingenuity and in this
that investigators had been invited into libya and would be provided protection. whether or not the libyan government could have delivered on that promise, we'll never know. what we do know is no fbi agents are in benghazi, according to our reporter. the crime scene remains unprotected and the official line seems to be everything is going fine with the libyan government and the fbi investigation. as we said, new details tonight. national security analyst fran townsend got some of them. so did cnn contributor bob baer. fran is the former white house homeland security advisor. she recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrew and forbes. bob is a former cia officer with deep experience in the middle east and arab world. also on the phone from tripoli, cnn's reporter. i'm a little surprised, fran, how they can say -- how they are painting what's happening on the ground in libya, especially based on what you're hearing from sources. >> look, anderson, we have not -- this is not the first international terrorism investigation regrettably going back to the east africa embassy bombings in the late
of what has happened. shanghai in particular. we began to get word from the chinese government that they were going to try to push another stimulus plan for whatever you think it works. they were up 2%. general electric talked about it, the best performer in the dow jones. since 2008. general electric, a very strong component of the doubt. we are awaiting key earnings from nike and research in motion. can the blackberry maker prove that they are still in the game with the crockery can? >> we will break down the results who has a sneak preview. also, trade with china reaching over $174 billion this year. we have a ceo who is hoping to change all that by making it easier than ever for u.s. businesses to sell their products in china. the domestic market is booming. is that the place to be? he will tell you how to get in. first, today's data download. all three ending in the green. the s&p breaking a losing streak. technology and energy were top performers. utilities did lack of it. today was the biggest for stocks in september, the fed announced its money program. u.s. weekly jobl

that shortly on the big headline getter. >> does the government have responsible to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have care today? >> we do provide care. if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die, we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics, some provide the care through emergency rooms. in my state we found a solution that worked for my state. i wouldn't take what we did in massachusetts and say to texas, you have to take the massachusetts model. >> he points to the massachusetts model, that's what he's trying to eliminate by providing universal coverage. it was mitt romney's rational for his own plan back in 2010. here he is back then on msnbc's "morning joe." >> do you believe in universal coverage? >> oh, sure. look, it doesn't make a lot of sense for us t
the libyan government, and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> relentless in tracking down the killers, and bringing them to justice. it's a promise. but does that promise add up? it has been 14 days since the american ambassador to libya and three other americans were killed. and we still don't know why, and we still don't know who did it. and what we do know, from our reporting here at cnn, is this. in terms of a warning, three days before stevens was killed, the libyan military told senior u.s. embassy officials it couldn't control local militias. the libyans advised the americans to decrease their presence in benghazi. and the libyans say the u.s. embassy officials did not ask for more security at that meeting. and as cnn has reported, sources familiar with chris stevens' thinking say he was worried about the security threats in benghazi and in libya. and he was concerned that he could be a target. in terms of whether the attacks were preplanned, libyan officials have since day one
-- no one thinks israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. so, the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, they would be too dangerous. even if you believe they would never use it. if you believe they are sane and rational and their country, their civilization would be destroyed if they dropped a bomb on someone because everyone would know it and the retaliation would be incomprehensible. even if you believe that, too bad things will happen. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you have, the more it will be stolen or sold or transferred to terrorists. that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get girl scout cookies worth of material -- it's enough to take out 20% to 25% of washington, d.c. just that little bit. so, the prospect of spreading, in a way, dirty
because of what some are calling a gaffe. mr. romney's big heading on health care. >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance, people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics. some provide the care through emergency rooms. in my state, we found a solution that worked for my state, but i wouldn't take what we did in massachusetts and say to texas, you've got to take the massachusetts model. >> so he points to the emergency room as a viable alternative for the uninsured, yet that's precisely the expensive alternative that his massachusetts model and the president's model try to eliminate by providing univer
was if you take government money, how much say does the government have in how you run your business? i think that turned out to be very true. the government got very involved in how the businesses were run, including compensation. >> including compensation and the use of capital. how are you going to spend money on something you think is good for the business when the government says they don't agree? that's the case with aig, general motors. let me get to the study you have done on the middle market. what was the most compelling thing you learned from your middle market customers in terms of where they are in the lending world? >> there were two really interesting things. first of all, our middle market customers are generally optimistic about their business. even though they're worried about the economy, 87% of them saw their business growing in the next 12 months, which is great. the second thing that was interesting is they said that they were satisfied with their access to capital and actually satisfied with the cost of the capital. >> which totally poo-poos the idea that banks are not
. this chinese company is a huge company. it's almost entirely owned by the chinese government. in 2005, they tried to take over an oil company based in california. so big chinese, state-run company trying to take over a california company. this is the chinese government, a big business deal like that actually does have national security implications for us as a country. that's the kind of international business deal that's subject to review by something called the committee on foreign investments in the united states. a big committee that reviews this stuff. the treasury secretary heads it up. when that committee was reviewing this deal with, congress went absolutely nuts over it it. in the end, that deal did not go through. that was in 2005. china was not allowed to come in and buy that company. now they are trying good. they are in the process of trying to buy a canadian oil company. but again, the committee on foreign investments in the u.s. has some jurisdiction here because the canadian company does a lot of business in our gulf of mexico. this is a chinese government-owned giant
they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it, it's an entitlement and the government should give it to them and they will vote for this president no matter what. >> a new poll finds 54% of all voters have an unfavorable view of romney's comments and 57% of independents feel the same way. that's a big reason why romney is in so much trouble in ohio and no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state. but when asked about how losing ohio would affect the electoral map, romney's campaign response said, i prefer to look at the map hol lift clee. he wants to look at the map holistically? how about realistically? president obama is trying to seal the deal. >> values are hard work and personal responsibility, those values that we believe in don't just belong to workers or businesses or the rich or the poor, the 53% or the 47%, the 1% or the 99%. those are american values. and if you're with me and if you work with me, we'll win what county again. we'll win ohio again. we'll finish what we started. we'll remind the world why the united states of america is the g
news studios in new york city. last week on this show, i told you that your government had lied to you about the attacks in egypt and libya when they claimed they were acts of a spontaneous mob in reaction to a youtube video. i said then and i repeat now, i normally would not have used such strong language and made such a bold declaration but the continuing revelations confirm that my statement was not an exaggeration. our government has lied to us. they did it knowingly. our ambassador to libya isn't dead because of some film. he is dead because we failed to heed the warnings that an attack was imminent. it took the administration two weeks to acknowledge that this was a carefully planned terrorist attack. egyptian president new it and white house knew it but ours wasn't honest with it and tried to continue the official story about it that this was all about a film that insulted moe78d. real question why would the administration embarrass itself by hoisting such a whopper on us and then thinking we wouldn't find out the truth? why would they hold a memorial for the slain ambassador an
a bomb on tehran. the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror. no one talking about this very much but if they had a nuclear weapon they would be very dangerous. even if they never use it. even if you believe that too bad things will happen if they get a bomb. that brings me to the second point that iran has the extensive contacts with terrorist groups. it put in the same fertilizer bomb that timmy mcvey used in oklahoma city. just that little bit. the prospect of spreading in a way dirty nuclear bombs with smaller payloads that would reek havoc and do unfold damage goes up every time some new country gets this capacity and you don't have any control over and you don't know whether they do over what happens to the fiscal material. >> if israel was to launch a strike because they believe that iran is right on the cusp of developing a nuclear weapon. if they do that what should america's response be? >> i shouldn't answer that question because of my wife's position. that's the president and security team desire of a decision to make. i generally have conf
. neil: and the government can. >> we have reached a tipping point. no matter who is in charge will not be able to fix the structural breakage in this economy. there is an appropriate partnership, we may give or terms and specifics but no beard with a thoughtful mind could say that private sector alone would lift this economy back to where it belongs, there are certain government actions that need to be taken as a comment to capitalism. >> you are now a socialist? >> not on the record. >> leo hindery, he actually does care about our country, clueless about that guy, but he does care, i'm kidding. neil: going the other way, do you remember yoko's big no, no, he wants to start a war on drilling, another hollywood hotshot giving her a run for her money, that is next, wait until yoko hears the competition, she will be hearing more of this. neil: matt going to the mat to take down natural gas drilling, joining celebrities such as yoko, who is literally screaming about this. what the fracq, hollywood needs to butt out. >> this is welcome. this is nothing but propaganda, this film is
%, think that substance of his comment about dependence on government is somewhat true. he is right. what do you make of that? >> you know something, 1935, fdr in his state of the union, said this relief, that is welfare is a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human shar hume must and shall get out of this business of welfare or relief, he is right, they did get out of it everyone agrees, if you have somebody that is down and got a rile problem, we all get together and help them out, and that -- against something that appeals to the american people. but idea that people on food stamps are never going to provide for their own food in america, their entire lives, when i grew up in washington d.c., 800,000 people, half african-american, half white, no body was on food stamps, there were no school lunches, now maybe you need some, but 47 million on food stamps, 80 billion for food stamps, more and more folks needing to fed by government, i think all of us sense that something is happening to the character of country and our people when we get there. neil: i do think you are right on this res
government has been very consistent from the beginning in saying this was preplanned. >> i think there's a lot of conflicting evidence. and frankly, i'm not privy to the classified information on this. and even if i was, i guess i couldn't tell you about it. my sense is that this was a spontaneous event, that some actors took advantage of. to commit an act of terrorism. now, i think we're still sorting through how much of that was preplanned. but clearly, they took advantage of a protest to do this. >> or they could have ignited the protest, right? and had everything planned. i guess we don't know. i still remain a little confused about that, but i wanted to ask you one other thing and that is also on "the view" when the president was talking to the women there. he talked about the anti-islamic fi film, and he said, and i want to quote him here. the best way to marginalize that kind of speech in the movie is to ignore it. yet calling the white house is spending $70 million to run an ad on prime time pakistani television, seven plus million dollars of which the u.s. and the secretary of
